At a Glance
Morocco has enjoyed steady economic growth supported in part by strong agriculture and fisheries sectors. However, climate variability and change are putting increased pressure on these climate-sensitive sectors. Sea level rise is associated with erosion and flooding and poses a risk to the entire coastline. The impact on limited and declining water resources is the predominant climate concern for the country. Water demand is expected to increase due to population growth, expanded irrigation schemes, and tourism, while water resources are projected to decline due to increased drought conditions and water shortages. The energy sector was responsible for most of the total GHG emissions, followed by the agriculture, waste, and bunker fuels sectors.
